TWE appoints Tony Watson as commercial director for the UK and Ireland

Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) appointed Tony Watson, the former managing director of C&C-owned cider producer Orchard Pig, as its commercial director for the UK and Ireland last month.

Watson has joined as commercial director after the promotion of Michelle Brampton to managing director for Europe in November last year.

He joins from Somerset-based Orchard Pig, which supplies a range of cider, soft drinks and beer in the UK.

Before Orchard Pig, Watson worked at Carlsberg UK in various sales and operational roles for over 30 years.

Commenting on his appointment, Watson said: “I am very excited to join a business with such a fantastic portfolio of innovative and award-winning brands. I’m really looking forward to working with our customers to help make our wines work for them and most importantly their shoppers.”
